, the pentagon renewed its formal threats against us in relation to ongoing publishing, but also extremely seriously in relation to ongoing, what they call, solicitation. that is asking sources publicly , send us important material and we will publish it. they say that itself is a crime. this is not simply a case about we received some information back in 2010 and have been publishing it, and they say that was the crime. the pentagon is maintaining a line that wikileaks inherently as an institution held military and government whistleblowers to come forward with this information as a crime. >> talk more, michael ratner, about the emails of stratford. >> as you have covered on the show before, they had a lot of important information about surveillance of everybody from peta to the yesmen, to u.s. government agencies. it puts out a regular intelligence newsletter. it does not work for private clients by major corporations, etc.. one of the things that came out and the stratfor emails are listed people who apparently are subscribers to the newsletter, and there are thousands of those emails,

the impact on the military overall will be, quote, very serious. >> the pentagon and the departments are already in financial trouble, because there has already been a $480 billion cut that is being applied right now as we speak. to take another cut on top of that is devastating. >> reporter: it's not just the military itself that will take a hit, also the defense industry, defense contractors, private companies that do work for the pentagon. one democratic congressman in northern virginia whose district maybe hit the hardest by all of this says it could mean layoffs. >> the large defense contractors will probably be okay, they have significant cash reserves, most of them. the smaller contractors would have trouble getting their lines of credit extended, trouble keeping their employees, if they can't be assured of continued employment. >> reporter: congressman moran says if we go over the cliff, which he thinks we will, then the impact and severity of the automatic defense spending cuts depend how long they are in place into the new year before congress finally fixes this fiscal clif
